We recently held a quiz asking passengers how much they know by heart the safety demo. Since we got several answers, we had some cabin crew check them and instead of emailing the respondents, we decided to just post the best answers here. The safety demo before take off is a very essential part and should never be disregarded. All airlines are trying different ways just to get the attention of passengers to pay attention to the safety demo.
Philippine Airlines and PAL Express is set to have a combined number of more than 100 aircraft by end of 2018 with the delivery of 5 Bombardier Q400NGs, 6 Airbus A321NEO and 4 Airbus A350-900. The Philippine Airlines group presently operates a total of 96 aircraft with 64 belonging to Philippine Airlines and 32 belonging to PAL Express. Philippine Airlines has a total pending order of 20 Airbus A321NEO, 6 Airbus A350-900, and 5 more Bombardier Q400NGs. The airline is also set to retire it's A340 fleet in the coming years.
When you think of flight pranks, you would just expect simple inexpensive ones, but most of the time, such pranks on board an actual flying aircraft are barely done due to the safety and security risks involved. Well a group from Argentina named Showmatch decided to really go all-out and created this very expensive but ultra realistic prank! Give them an A for 'A-ffort'! This edition of their show is called "Worst Flight Of Your Life".
There is a huge difference between the statements "the customer is always right" and "the customer comes first". The former is all about the customer being correct regardless of what he wants or says. The latter is about putting the customer as a priority. For air travel, the safety, comfort, and experience of passengers are the top priorities of airlines as these passengers pay for a plane ticket to get them from point A to point B safely and comfortably.
Riding an airplane is far different from riding a bus or a car. Given that you are flying at a height of 40,000ft where the air is thin, you are basically riding a metal life support system. Anything can happen, and this is why there are things to follow. When you purchase an airplane ticket, you basically subject yourself to the safety rules and regulations of the airline, which are basically being carried out by your cabin crew. Here are very important dos and donts when flying that you should not disregard.
Many are very excited for the Airbus A350-900 to fly home to Manila in Philippine Airlines colors. RP-C3501, PAL's first Airbus A350-900 is expected to arrive this July.

We are very excited to for this new aircraft and below is a video of its very first test flight.
We have all been hearing the term "customer is always right". Some people take this too literally that it has become a source of quarrels or even physical assaults between customers and business establishments. In commercial aviation, this "customer is always right" is not always true, especially if safety and security are to be compromised.
